Handcrafted in Erlangen, Germany – Clearaudio products are regarded as innovative, of true quality, and of setting the highest standards by hi-fi specialists and top class engineers alike. Based on this philosophy Clearaudio has been setting new standards in the analogue reproduction of music for more than 30 years. They offer a comprehensive range of high-end phono cartridges, tonearms and turntables, phono preamplifiers, class-A amplifiers, plugs, cables, racks and even the audiophile production of vinyl records.
Master Innovation Wood
Clearaudio’s Master Innovation Wood is the ultimate expression of the Innovation Wood platform. It features a magnetic platter drive system based upon the award winning and incomparable Statement turntable.
It takes the magnetic drive system from the ultimate Clearaudio Statement with an additional 15mm stainless steel sub-platter. The upper platter uses 85mm Ceramic Magnetic Bearing (CMB) and the 3 speed DC motor offers Optical Speed Control (OSC) and push button electronic speed selection. The 4 Tri-star plinths feature solid Panzerholz and aluminum sandwich construction to minimize resonance and vibration. The master Innovation Wood is capable of supporting 3 tonearms to allow for convenient and optimal playback of a wide range of source material and formats. More importantly, the Master Innovation Wood is on demonstration at Audio High in Mountain View so you can audition it today.
At the other end of the scale we are also proud to demonstrate the Clearaudio Concept turntable that offers stunning German design and build quality in a remarkably affordable and easy to live with package. Available without cartridge or factory fitted with either the Concept MM or MC cartridges, it can be ready to play straight out of the box.
In searching for an appropriate product to offer new or ‘born again’ vinyl fans, we fell in love with the Concept as it offered a great deal of performance and quality at a bargain price. We weren’t the only ones to recognize such a fantastic combination;
“If you feel the need for an outstanding turntable between now and then though, don’t think twice.”
Turntable product of the year 2009, 2010, 20111 in What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision.
“Whether you power the Clearaudio Concept with the standard issue power supply or take it a step forward with pure DC power, I feel this table is the new benchmark in its price class. It combines simple setup with stunning good looks and performance to match. We are happy to award the Clearaudio Concept one of our Exceptional Value Awards for 2010.”
Jeff Dorgay, ToneAudio
“Fitted with the Concept MC cartridge, Clearaudio’s plug’n’play Concept turntable-tonearm-cartridge combo is exceptionally attractive, easy to set up and use, and seems better built than its price would suggest. It’s a quiet, smooth performer that excels at midrange smoothness and transparency of the sort that makes speakers seem to vanish—even my $65,000/pair speakers.”
Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2011.
“The Clearaudio Concept turntable package does everything but unbox itself. For sheer musical engagement and superb speed stability it’s the ‘table to beat in this range.”
Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, Issue 205.
